Here's #4757 on the Bx22. Somebody mentioned that it arrived, but here's the proof!

 

Really didn't need proof.. They put some in service on the BX12 as well.

So has the B44 been completely converted to Articulated or is it still a mixture between 40 fters and 60 fters?

 

Also is FR open again? I ask because the Q35 has hybrids with the FR decals en route along Flatbush Avenue.

It's still a mixture and plus not all of FB's artics have been delivered yet.

FR has been open.. 9124 was on the Q35 today shot a picture of it at the junction. It was run 012, it was swinging around the corner to head back to the rockaways.

Wouldn't it been easier just by saying Spring Creek alone, instead of adding "Command" before it? Same thing with the Green Bus phrase... Smh

Lol, some folks don't want to forget the past :)

 

but as for the q35, I think micstromme meant JFK stickers, some of the 3500s still has those. I'm also surprised the RTS was on it. The o5s are the ones I see the most. I haven't seen a c40lf/o5cng on the q35 in a while. After feb, it has happened maybe 1 time and it was a c40lf. jFK lines are the ones borrowing those buses more.

6220 is getting worked on a Jamaica, it'll head to Casey Stengel when done. 

6286  is @ QV but for maintenance reasons. 



They're at jamaica & QV for:

Maintenance so they can go to Stengel who we're helping out because these buses are so beat. We are only inspecting, working on them, cleaning them and pretri ping them

 

They won't hit service @ QV or JAM

 

When they get to Stengel then they will hit service

5823, 5829, and 5832 back at Quill. 5606 over at 126th, down to just one D60 at Quill. And just re: the roster, 6622 and 6657 are in service at Mannyville, done being rehabbed.

Brings me memories of that trip in a Yukon Orion V (don't remember number) where I sat on the right side in the middle of the bus and looked up to see the middle roof clearance light dangling in the wind the whole way.
